Now I know why they chose Stay livre from Toronto...

...to be released as a B-side. Because it's amazingly, astonishingly, breathtakingly BEAUTIFUL. It's perfection, everything in this performance is in its right place, Bono's voice and interpretation, Edge's acoustic guitar and backing vocals, the crowd singing along the "oh, oh, oh" part. I wish I were there, my, oh my...

I got my Canadian Stuck single yesterday and I cannot stop listening to Stay. I wanna thank Michael Griffiths and SkeeK for the tip on this CD single. It's my fave already.

Wanderer, the Zoo Europa one used to be fave...until I listened to this one.

Mariana, this single has the edit version of Stuck plus Stuck acoustic, Stay from Toronto and Elevation Vandit remix, really nice.

Zoo Europa is still the better for me too..the gentle alternative acoustic opening...Bono's gentle falsetto he hits on every chorus..either way its a gem live

Yeah, the Zooropa and Zoomerang/New Zooland etc. ones are slightly better in my opinion due to the fact that there are two guitars in it plus Larry and Adam....gives it a much fuller and completed sound....but the Elevation version is great because it is quite different and a lot more in the theme of the Elevation tour.
Bless you all.

I was lucky enough to hear it live, and it was really amazing. Not a lot of the audience seemed to know it at first, but really got into it by the end.

Edge: Oh boy, here we go...
Bono: Wow, how many is that now Adam?
Adam: Nine. If I didn't have my spoons, I'd go insane.
Bono: Can I see it?
*adam gives bono the spoon, bono throws it away*
Adam: My spoon!

I always like the studio version of this song better than the acoustic live one.

Hey people, this is not a contest, LOL, ZOO Europa version is outstanding, no doubt, but I rather listen to this new one nowadays.

I think you already know me, right? When I get excited and moved (again ) by a U2 song or especific performance I feel like sharing with yaīll. Thanks for your responses.

I think they were still high from the Toronto version when they played in Buffalo next. "I think this might be the best song we've written!" - Bono, about 'Stay' before he and the Edge played it in Buffalo 5/31 (quote as best as I can remember, so it may not be totally accurate)

It was definitely memorable. I haven't listened to it in the same way since.

I have:
1-Stuck with BD and NY from Farmclub(a must for me )
2-Stuck with Big girls are best and BD Quincey & sonance remix.
3-Stuck with Big girls are best,
All i want is you-live in paris
and Even better than the real thing-live in paris. I "had" to have this one because of the pictures and neat packaging.
Bono speaking French a nice treat too.

I think I'm Out of Control with singles this time around, can you say addiction?lol

I was able to find the "Walk On" single (from Australia) that includes "Streets" and Gone from Boston AND "Stay" from Toronto.
follower you're a right, that version of Stay is just a beautiful, thank you for the recommendation!
We also bought the "Walk On" single (from England) with the acoustic "Stuck" and the video.
